BMW X2 In The Works, Paceman Adding Doors: Report Photo:

BMW has reportedly confirmed that it will introduce a coupe-like X2 crossover in 2017, to sit alongside the more conventional X1 compact SUV.

Like the niche-making X6 and the new X4, the even smaller X2 would showcase a more sporting look, targeting lifestyle-focused buyers not drawn to the X1’s practical wagon design.

The next X1 is expected to ride on the same front-wheel-drive platform that underpins the new 2 Series Active Tourer, and according to enthusiast site Bimmerpost, the X2 will do the same.

All- and front-wheel-drive versions of the new X1 are expected, although the report claims the X2 will be offered exclusively in all-paw xDrive form.

The X2 could also set itself apart from its larger X6 and X4 siblings by boasting not only a five-door option, but - like its stablemate the MINI Paceman - also a sharper three-door design.

Interestingly, the report also claims that a BMW insider has confirmed plans for a next-generation Paceman that would switch from three doors to five while keeping its fastback styling. (Think Range Rover Evoque - Ed.)

As for the Countryman - already the five-door progenitor of the current Paceman - the report adds that the next model will be made into a more capable off-roading weekender.

It remains to be seen if there is any truth to this latest report, but BMW has concocted wilder projects than this in years past.
